For the past year, I have been learning to deal with the added restrictions and allergies of feeding my daughter. I began on the journey of adapting recipes that were baby-friendly, and also free from 5 of the most common allergens: nuts, dairy, soy, eggs and legumes. Keeping in mind that baby-friendly also means sugar-free. If you loved the banana muffins recipe I published a few months ago, you are going to want to add this one to your try list!
Roadtrips are only glamourous when you’re travelling with friends, and when none of the passengers are children. Sorry, not sorry–it’s true! I mean, I kneeeew that travelling by car with a toddler for a 9 hour drive was going to be a challenge, but I guess my hopes and dreams hid the reality of how much a shit-show it was going to be. And how much longer it was going to take… The first couple
This is it, the post you’ve been waiting for. Okay, maybe not, but I’d like to think so! In case you’re new to the party, I’ve been collecting a few items over the last couple of months to transition from menstrual pads to something less contstant-yuck. Yes, that’s the technical word and I’m sticking to it! And I must say, this is the first time in my entire life that I was actually looking forward
I am constantly told that I am so lucky. Lucky for having such a good baby. Lucky that she never cries. Lucky that she communicates so well. Lucky that she is so eats so well. Excuse me, but luck has nothing to do with it! She rarely cries in public because I do my darn best to prevent it: I feed her when she says she’s hungry, I give her a drink when she says
I’ve been a work-from-home-boss for years before the pandemic (hipster moment!) and the only thing that has changed my routine and business more was the birth of my child. Now with these two big players, my life as a boss has been flipped upside down, but in true mama fashion — I’m making it work! With childcare bring ripped from my grasp — not just daycare but friends and family too! — my schedule and
Definitely not a blog post I ever thought I would be writing, but here we are, ready to deep dive into personal territory and discuss all things periods. Which means you probably never heard me talk about my experience with my actual first period, at the ripe age of 11. Actually, a few weeks shy of. Beautiful! Oh, and that my mother was nowhere to be found so it was actually my dad who explained
A wrote this a while back as an Instagram post, in fact I reference this topic all of the time here and there, but especially given the wordly situation right now, it deserves to be highlighted as it’s very own post. Supporting small businesses is easier than you think. And no, you don’t need to spend money to do it, it just helps that much more! View this post on Instagram As we packed up
Motherhood shows you what your true priorities are. You become reliant on naptime to get everything done, and since the duration is always unknown, you have to make your list of need-to-get-done tasks and hope you get as many done as possible. It can quickly get overwhelmind if you haven’t planned things out, because you get frazzled trying to decide which things to get done, and end up spending the entire nap planning what you
Tomorrow is #InternationalWomensDay and I am celebrating by putting together a #GalPalGiftGuide with gift ideas that your best babe will love (at any time during the year, but feel free to use tomorrow as an excuse!). Another way I will be celebrating is by sharing about all of the badass women in my life and their accomplishments in my instagram stories. For this I need your help, so go ahead and send me their usernames in the IWD highlight on my
Providing for a baby is hard work. Deciding to allow someone else to care for them—even if only temporarily—is a very difficult decision. And as if making that decision wasn’t hard enough, making enough milk for those one or two days a week is nearly impossible for a just-enougher.
